Radian Vs Easystar

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hey guy, I hate to start a new topic but I got my radian RTF and would like some advice from people who have flown both. The easy star was my first sailplane and I was using my DX8 to control it. After the spektrum recall I decided to buy the RTF version of the radian since my pro order got messed up. I needed a trainer radio too so this fit the bill. So as it sits I am using the dx5 to control the radian and it seems super responsive compared to the easy star. Is it just me or is the radian just more responsive since I never did get around to the tail mod for the easy star plus I am using a different radio to control the radian. Any advice/ opinions would be appreciated.

Re: Radian Vs Easystar

with the power on yes the radian is super responsive
with the power off it not to bad ! i like it
just remember the radian is not ment to fly with the power on for the whole flight
its just to get it up there and then to glide around trying to find lift
